Getting Clear on Rights and Rules:
The Intersection of Law and Philosophy

If a tree falls on you in the woods and nobody sees it, have you been wronged?
MYou might have been harmed, but you would probably not accuse the tree of violating your human rights by falling over and crushing you. Unless, that is, you believe that rights are non-relational—then you might have some trouble getting the tree off the hook.
MThese are the kind of puzzles on which Michael Baur, Ph.D., a lawyer, an associate professor of philosophy, and an adjunct professor at Fordham School of Law, is an expert.

The associate professor of Italian said that the mental gymnastics required to understand the poetic texts provide students with a contemporary skillset.
